Recently installed an oil catch can on my GDI 2.0 turbo (2016 Santa Fe Sport). Very easy to do after you prep a custom-made mounting bar. The catch can traps and condenses out damaging crankcase vapors/gunk. This reduces carbon buildup on the engine's air intake valves. Works VERY well. See photos.

Thank you so much for sharing.



Was the metal bar aluminum?

Was it easy to bend?

Did you have to heat it up to bend?

Did you buy it from Home Depot? Or elsewhere.


Where did you buy your oil can catcher?


More, importantly, how is the oil can catcher doing?


Would you do anything differently?


Any other words of wisdom for a novice?


Thank you again for kindness in posting.

Very easy to install on my 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T
Bar was aluminum (36-inch); bought at Lowe's multi-metal rack.
Used a DREMEL metal-cutting disk to cut bar.
Used a vice-grip to bend bar (easy).
The catch can works great: I check and empty it every oil change.
Forgot where I bought it online. Goggle "Oil Catch Can" to find these.
TIP: Get one that DOES NOT have a visual oil-display tube (they leak)

I am literally about to go to the store to figure out a way to mount mine.

I have heard about people putting steel wool in theirs. Have you tried this?

What hose does this connect to? I assume the hose from the engine to the PCV valve?

If you live in freezing weather, the contents of that C.C. hookup can damage the engine, if it gets freeze-clogged.
Be Aware!!! It's the #1 reason why many dealerships will void your warranty, if they see it hooked up under the hood.

It's sad that I need to mention this - all because the thread-starter doesn't mention his geographic location in his posts, in his Signature or inside his member profile page.

Doing so should be a requirement for membership on messageboards where location can turn a particular thread discussion upside down / inside out.
